When you suffer a loss whether it’s the (hopefully) occasional loss of a loved one; or the (typically) more frequent loss of an opportunity experienced as a minor disappointment, the emotions can be overwhelming and something with which we will all be faced and something we all need to learn how to manage. According to our mental health expert, Dr. Tim Sharp, The good news is that we can cope with loss. As humans, we are remarkably strong most of the time. Knowing loss and disappointment will come at some stage, knowing what to expect and having some idea about what you can do to actively ameliorate the distressing emotions, are all important components of living a healthy and resilient life." In this article Tim provides his advice on how to help us understand our emotions, take care ourselves, seek support, and look to a positive future.
